Dilapan-S® offers a unique combination of efficacy, safety and comfort!
Dilapan-S® - ideal for your birth
Dilapan-S® is a synthetic mechanical dilator and it offers a unique combination of features, which you may find more acceptable and comfortable during the cervical ripening phase.
Dilapan-S® are small rods, that will be placed through your vagina and inside your cervix by your doctor or midwife. Usually 3-5 rods are placed in your cervix.
Over approximately the next 12−15 hours the Dilapan-S® dilators will stay inside your cervix. But do not worry, you will not feel the rods inside you and you will be able to sleep, relax, walk, take a shower and perform your normal daily activities.
Speak to your doctor or midwife whether you can go home with Dilapan-S® in place.
Only taking a bath and sexual intercourse have to be avoided while rods are in place.
Ask your doctor or midwife about Dilapan-S®
